I was trying to take a pic of an unusual Moon shape that I had never seen.The Moon wd not show up in my phone camera lens, just Lights.

I am a Customer Service office worker at a manufacturing plant here in Austin, Texas. I have been working from home for the last few weeks but still have to go into my Office a few times a week in order to process specific customer orders and print off needed paperwork on the office printer. I went into my office on Sunday evening on 2/06/2022 to get some things ready for the upcoming week working at home. I ended up staying later than expected, leaving my Office at about 11:00 p.m. I took my usual route home down Interstate Highway 183 North heading toward Cedar Park, Texas. As I was driving, I noticed that the Moon was an unusual shape that I had never noticed before. It was a Crescent-shape moon, but the crescent shape was on the Bottom of the moon, not on the Left or Right as I have normally seen it. In looking it up, I see it is called a ‘Waxing Crescent’ moon. I decided to pull to the right-side median on the Interstate to take a picture. I attempted to take a photo of the Moon, but when I held the phone camera up, the Moon did not appear in the photo. I looked with my eyes and the Moon was there--I looked at my phone and no Moon was visible. I thought this was very strange. I could only see in the phone camera 2 Blue lights and another white cylinder-type light above them. I snapped a photo of where the Moon was supposed to be and where only the lights were visible at 11:24 p.m. The address where the Photo was take is about 12990 Research Blvd, Austin, TX 78750, as you can see the "Austin's Automotive Specialists" car repair building and Sign in the photo. They are located at Hwy 183 South, whereas, I was traveling Hwy 183 North up on the Interstate, pulled over and took the Photo to my left-hand side. I pulled back into traffic and continued down Hwy 183 North-bound. I looked closer at the Photo and could see the two (2) Blue lighted objects almost appeared florescent and a Cylinder-shaped object above them that appeared to be lighted, and an additional four (4) objects above the Cylinder that appeared to be further away. At 11:42 p.m. I sent the Photo I had taken to my daughter to verify what I was seeing. She was able to take my Photo and sharpen the images a bit, but it’s still hard to clearly define the Cylinder-shaped ship. I have my original photo taken, and the one my daughter sharpened and they are definitely very unusual. I am still not sure why the Moon would not appear in my phone camera lens. That is also strange! I wanted to report the sighting. Thank you very much.
